Queen for a Day with VSA

Madonna, Kelly Osbourne, Miley Cyrus, Britney Spears, Beyonce, Maria Shriver and David Beckham are just a few of the very famous stylesetters who regularly adorn themselves with jewelry from Virgins Saints & Angels (VSA). This past week SWAG jewelry store at NorthPark Center hosted an appearance of VSA's founder and designer, Cheryl "Finn" Finnegan and gave those of us addicted to the bling a chance to touch, feel and even wear her latest collection.

Finnegan's anticipated Spring collection was inspired by the ABC show "Once Upon a Time" and features both delicate angelic and edgier gothic pieces for the ABC characters. After years of creating tiaras, the chance to design crowns inspired by these characters was a dream come true for VSA. VSA's first step in the design process was to really imagine these become the characters. They found that they related equally to both featured women (Snow White and the Evil Queen). The sensitive vulnerability and the bold confidence of the leading ladies are traits juggled constantly in us all. They turned to color, using Swarovski elements to create two collections-- soft pink and pure white to represent Snow and deep red and jet to represent the Queen. These two distinct collections were designed to compliment each other and work seamlessly when layered together.

Visit SWAG to view designs from this collection, as well as designs from the entire line.  SWAG is located in the luxury wing of NorthPark Center by Neiman Marcus and next door to Anthropologie.
